Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Urine that is held too long before being eliminated often leads to infections of the bladder or kidneys. Although many people can have a UTI without any symptoms, there is usually at least one sign or symptom.

Urinary Signs & Symptoms of Infection

  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Feeling the need to urinate more often than usual
  • Feeling the urge to urinate but not being able to
  • Leaking a little urine
  • Foul smelling urine
  • Cloudy, dark or bloody urine
  • Chills & fever
  • Pain
  • Worsening of spasticity, weakness or neurological symptoms may be the first sign of a urinary tract infection

Is there any way to avoid urinary tract infections?

How are urinary tract infections diagnosed and treated?

What should I do if there is leakage around the Foley or suprapubic catheter?
